UCEA 2018-19 HE pay negotiations

The 2018-19 pay negotiations are in progress, with trade unions now considering an employers’ offer of a baseline 1.7% pay increase (with higher increases at the lower points of the scale).

The Universities and Colleges Employers Association (UCEA) and Higher Education trade unions have recently met for the second of three agreed meetings as the New Joint Negotiation Committee for Higher Education Staff, (‘New JNCHES’) to discuss the 2018-19 pay offer. The next meeting is scheduled for 10 May 2018.

UCEA represents 147 HE employers, including the University of Leeds.

For University of Leeds staff employed on the University salary scales, the current offer would mean an annual basic pay increase of at least 1.7% for all staff.
